Trail Information

Highlights

Dog Leg is a fun little trail through a young stand of timber that is just starting to poke above the old stumps. The trail runs along the top of a hill before it switchbacks down toward a large gravel pull-out on Seven Cedars Road. But before the trail is over, vehicles must thread their way through three large stumps that sometimes can necessitate a three point turn. The end of the trail is marked by a huge fallen cedar stump that can dwarf vehicles parked next to it and makes for an interesting photo opportunity.
